Too long have we waited for a good curse of the mummy movie. But now The Pyramid promises the return of excavation horror paired with plenty of ancient booby traps and resurrected mummies—you know, all that good mummy shit. Oh, and it stars the sensational Denis O'Hare. SOLD.
While participating in a Q&A as part of #LiveFromSpace, astronaut Douglas H. Wheelock shared this photograph of the Egyptian pyramids, as photographed from the ISS in December 2013. I love the sharpness of the shadows: it's so clean that it reads like an optical illusion.
The Mars Curiosity Rover has touched a Martian rock for the first time. And, in the process, it gave us the closest, most detailed view of the Red Planet (a tiny part of it) yet, using her Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) camera at ten, two and one inches from the rock.
NASA's Mars Rover Curiosity has its first analysis target, an intriguing rock with a pyramidal shape that is now 8.2 feet (2.5 meter) from its current location. The scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory are excited about this and other features discovered by the rover's cameras.
Gotta love modern art that makes a statement, looks impressive and invites user interaction. German artist Cyprien Gaillard hits all three with his beer case pyramid.
Our first look at the HTC Pyramid showed us a glimpse of the exterior, but now a truckload of images have backed up at the XDA Developers forum. What can we learn? That this is, as we thought, one big ol' smartphone. A 4.3-inch 960×540 qHD display in front of a 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, an 8MP rear and 1.3MP…
More info and the first pics have emerged of the HTC Pyramid, which we heard last month will be a mammoth new Android phone with qHD screen. Today's leaked specs purport it'll have an 8MP camera (with 1.3MP forward-facing cam); a 4.3-inch SuperLCD screen with that "close to retina display" qHD (960 x 540) resolution;…
Tales of a Super-Android-Phone, the HTC Pyramid, have hit the web hard. There's talk it could be HTC's first dual-core handset, supposedly running on a 1.2GHz Snapdragon. Disappointingly, it could be another one for Big Hands Only, at 4.3-inches.
Like a massive stone puzzle, the Great Pyramid has refused to give up all of its secrets. One of the last are two shafts out of the "Queen's Chamber." Purpose? Unknown, even to this day. Robots to the rescue.
Experimental design team Aircord Labs has released a proof of concept video demonstrating an iPad with 3D capabilities visible to the naked eye. The effect is achieved with a specially designed projector that beams images into a pyramid shaped screen.
The phone's ringing, but you've got a direct message from a hottie on Twitter. Oh, a Facebook message while you're watching kittens on video. What takes priority? Don't panic. This chart will guide you through the hierarchy of Internet distractions.
This house might look like it's straight out of the future, but it's actually based on the oldest house design in Japan: the pit dwelling.
A particularly optimistic design firm in Dubai called Timelinks has proposed designs for the Ziggurat, a complete city to be layered inside of a massive pyramid that could serve as home for a million people at a time. Timelinks is currently seeking patents for a variety of technologies that would make such a building…
Astana, Kazakhstan, has a new entertainment center that looks like a transparent pyramid-shaped alien ship. Designed by British architecture firm Foster and Partners, the structure arises from a 220 yard elliptical base and provides an indoor park, shopping venues, shelter from extreme weather conditions, and—perhaps…
Although this Powramid looks quite similar to the flying saucer surge protector we saw last month, this looks a bit more refined in terms of not looking like some guy made it in his garage. The Powramid has the same six outlets that the flying saucer had, but has their outlets facing right side up, meaning your…
Tell time like an Egyptian with this Pyramid Clock by Brando. There are no hands on this clock, just three rotating pieces. The top represents seconds, the middle minutes, and the bottom hours. The marker on the base indicates what time it is "now", as you read up the clock. Fifteen bucks gets you this desk gadget.
